. >>> good morning everyone i'm ashleigh banfield nice to have you in the newsroom with us, we begin with a story of a 5-year-old alabama boy, a boy named ethan, who woke up in a hospital this morning with his mom and his favorite dinosaur toy. this after a week of being locked away with a ruthless killer in an underground bunker. before a dramatic swat like rescue, in which he saw two grown men shot dead right before his eyes, his bus driver a week before and his captor just yesterday. this is so hard to imagine how a young mind will ever recover from an ordeal like this, earlier on cnn, we heard from alicia, herself a kidnapping victim as a teenager who runs a victim support group. here is her advice. >> you have to try to keep things normal. that's what we have to do for this little boy is keep certain things as normal as possible. >> like what? >> things like just basic routines he had done before. his favorite games, his favorite movies, his favorite food. just try to keep an anchor in the before. and really not equate him with this happening to him. this happened to him.
,000 flights canceled. >> and ashleigh banfield joins me now from fairfield, connecticut. i heard you on the phone. it was a white-knuckle drive just to get you there. >> reporter: marty savidge, do you know how long it took me to get to this town from where i live which is typically about a 15-minute drive? it took one hour and 45 minutes. i spent about 45 of those minutes right at the exit. when the governor says don't drive, the governor means what he says. it's really stupid for anyone else -- i was single file on 95 with a bunch of yahoos who shouldn't have been there passing wreck after wreck after wreck. not only that, very few plays could you exit or get on to the freeway because snowplows had created four-foot banks that were shut into exit. you were shut in to a gas station or shut out of a gas station on and on like that. it was single file for a long time. almost didn't make my live shot for you now. let me give you a feel for this. it is windy. it's sunny and lovely, and the snow has stopped. but because there's so much wind, it looks like it's still snowing. it's been ch
. keep the conversation going. cnn newsroom continues with ashleigh banfield. >>> carol, thanks so much. hello, everyone. first came the manifesto, and then came the murders. and now los angeles police officers are being forced to watch their backs this morning after an ex-cop allegedly made good on threats to kill fellow officers and their families. christopher dorner was fired from the force after a series of hearings in which he felt he had been wronged. and now he's threatening to quote, bring asymmetrical and unconventional warfare to any la cop on duty or off. the body count is mounting. one officer is dead. another wounded. also dead, a former officer's daughter and her fiance. we are watching this story as it continues to develop. but again, la police officers at this hour are themselves in need of protection. we are not being given a lot of details to o exactly where they've are looking for this man. but make no mistake he has a history not only in law enforcement but in military, and it's very difficult to find someone when he knows the tricks of the trade. this is no ordinary
to bring in ashleigh banfield in new york to take us through a lot of the snow, the rain, the ice, everything that will happen in the next 24 hours. ashleigh? >> reporter: you know new york too well. i look like i'm in a rainstorm, a sleet storm, i am. we're in a morphing stage right now. where these people are all trying to gorks taking the yellow cabs, maybe a visit in central park it's not going to last. it's going to get really ugly and things will shut down. they are looking to revise the transit in and out of the city. but new york has been to this before. a couple of months ago we dealt with sandy. traffic was really light into manhattan today. me thinks it's going to stay light as well. look at this guy right here. he is right now using a skimmer just to make sure that people don't skid along in the slushy mess. but he's going to have to get himself a big shovel like the rest of us. fema has already put out the warnings to new englanders. get ready. get preprayered. batteries, shovels, candles, gasoline. there are already lines for gasoline. we went through this in sandy.
that's the case, ashleigh, so for now, i guess we can revel in the fact that we're at 14,000 as we end this story. >> yeah. i'm going to attribute that to you and your report for that to creep back up and over. either that or everyone's excited about the super bowl. there you have it, the numbers, alison watching the story for us live on the new york stock exchange. thanks, alison. >>> i want to switch gears. there is another story that's playing out. this is day four of a terrifying hostage situation in alabama. growing more tense by the moment. we are talking about a 5-year-old boy who is involved. that child is being held in an underground bunker. and the person holding him is clearly deranged. police, the fbi, hostage negotiators, all of them at the scene. but the neighbors say that bunker is no joke. it is well-stocked, and the suspect could apparently be capable of staying in that bunker for days. our george howell now has a closer look of just what we're dealing with here. >> reporter: jimmy davis jr. and his family have been neighbors to jimmy dikes since he moved to this area
will take care of you. . >>> hello everyone i'm ashleigh banfield i want to get you started with quick headlines right out of the gate. home mail delivery on saturday, about to be a thing of the past. the postal service just announced it's going to stop weekend delivery of letters and other first class mail starting august 1st. you will still get your packages, though. but the cash strapped post office says this move is going to save them billions of dollars. defense secretary leon panetta is dropping a bombshell on active duty troops and their families, we have exclusive information he will ask today for their pay raises to be cut. from 1.7% to just 1%. obviously this looks a lot like a shot across the bow over those possible defense cuts in the works. in fact secretary panetta minced no words at speaking at georgetown a short while ago. he says the upcoming automatic defense spending cuts threaten, quote, the most serious readiness crisis faced by the military in more than a decade. >> for more than a year and a half, the joint chiefs of staff and i have been extremely vocal about ou
five bucks." your accent needs a little work. . >>> hello everyone i'm ashleigh banfield we are keeping a close watch on three developing stories for you. a three day nightmare dragging on for 4,000 people stuck in the gulf of mexico. forced to sleep on the deck of a hot smelly crippled cruise ship. also, just when you think you heard it all, more shocking testimony from jody arias, about the boyfriend, that she admits to violently killing. we will bring you the latest in that murder trial. >>> and then her little boy was hostage in an underground bunker, now ethan's mom is speaking out about the ordeal with dr. phil. you will hear what she had to say. >>> first we start with an end to a vacation from hell after floating stranded in the gulf of mexico for days, more than 4,000 people on a carnival cruise ship are now on the move once again being towed to shore at about the same speed as a lawn mower. and they won't hit land for days. their ship lost power this weekend and passengers have been running short on food and water and working bathrooms, and of course patients. there's even one
staff members to help with the guests. and now, ashleigh, you know, what carnival is of course saying is that they do have showers working, people can take cold showers, not hot showers, and of course, that they have restored some of the toilets in the public areas and in some of the state rooms. ashleigh. >> i'm sure at the beginning of the cruise on thursday, it was probably lovely. but since sunday i'm sure these people have just about had it. they have a couple more days to endure. hopefully, john, it will stay just a hassle and not get more dangerous or of course the food supplies, et cetera, and the danger of the sewage issues will be taken care of. keep an eye on it for us, if you will, mr. marle a, we will talk legal issues and what recourse some of these passengers have against the cruise ship, once of course they reach dry land. i want to take you to california right now, breaking news, the los angeles police department is holding an update, an emergency news conference on the manhunt for the person they are searching for, whose been looking to take out officers in revenge a
with ashleigh banfield. >> thank you very much, carol. hello, everyone. good to have you with us. i'm ashleigh banfield. the vatican fighting off rumors of unholy scandals behind the pope's resignation as a cardinal quits under a cloud. >>> cannibalism in the courtroom. an officer, a police officer, accused of plotting to cook and eat women, and he goes on trial today. >>> and a mega trial over millions of gallons of oil spilled in the gulf. it could mean billions and billions more in fines for bp. >>> so leave it to $85 billion in spending cuts to remind people just how much the federal government matters. moments from now, president obama and vice president biden are due to meet with the nation's governors who do not need reminding that they're able to meet their payrolls, employ their citizens and their citizens largely because of washington's host. for the rest of us, the white house is pointing out how spending cuts in almost every federal program and department are going to affect each state. let's go to a couple of them. for instance, north dakota, it stands to lose funding for ten of i
, is the major concern. ashleigh. >> barbara, i'm reading here his last day of affiliation with the navy as a reservist was february 1st of this year. we are talking about -- what's astounding here -- i was going to say he has eight awards, eight different awards including the ones you mentioned. but any idea about his mental illness or his mental health or anything that the military might have on him? >> reporter: let me talk about that for a second. we asked about that, because it was astounding, when you look at the record, you and i are looking at the same document, february 1st, 2013 is listed. february 1st as his last day of service in the reservists. what they are trying to figure out, was he on some sort of, if you will, leave, vacation time, separation? had he basically stopped serving as a reservist some weeks or months before that, and this is the day he was officially taken off the rolls? we are trying to figure that out. the military is trying to figure that out right now. i think it's very safe to assume the military trying to share whatever information they are able to wit
we've been following all day long, the blizzard in the northeast. ashleigh banfield is in fairfield, connecticut covering that. how are things looking where you are, ashleigh? >> reporter: it's not about the look, it's about the feel, brianna. the light is going down, the sun is going down, the temperatures are going down. and yet, brianna, we still have clogged arteries. clogged roadways. that 95 is still a parking lot where i am in fairfield, connecticut. plows are pretty intermittent and while you do see some people traveling, because they are allowed to travel, technically, they're not supposed to be, anyway. the governor here has said please just stay off the roads and let the utility companies get to restore power. let the plows do their job. we're just now hearing a confirm savings five known fatalities in this state alone. this is where the record snowfalls were found, brianna, so it's still an emergency. blizzard warnings may be over, but the emergency is not over. and we are going down to minus 10 with the wind chill here. so if your car gets stuck, and you get buried, you
all day, the blizzard in the northeast. we go to ashleigh banfield in fairfield, connecticut. how are things there? >> as the day turned into night, the temperatures are plummeting. and what started as a big snowfall story has become a snow on the ground story. the plows are still out all over this state and all over the northeast. trying to keep up with the mess that was left behind. this gas station behind me, it is dead. it is empty. not because they're out of gas, they're out of employees. no one could get here to reopen it. not only that, but the actual gas pumps just started getting too cold and wouldn't work. above this gas station is i-95 and it is chock a block like a parking lot. the problem is, even though the travel ban was lifted in connecticut today, the governor said, please, please, don't travel, we're still in emergency mode. we still need plows to get out. we still need those utility crews to get out and restore power to tens of thousands of people. trouble is, no one's listening and it is a mess up there and they are stuck. here's the other issue. six people is

schools of thought on this, ashleigh. there are some who think it's really legitimate that there are finally cuts coming and that washington does nothing without its back to a corner. so why don't we go with these cuts? because you'll never get them agreed to through negotiation. the problem -- the problem -- we have to remind of this. there are a lot of people saying democrats are fearmongering. the problem here is the hand-fisted, unfocused nature of these cuts. these are sledgehammers where you really need stilettos. the government is not as fat as people think it is, and you're going to learn this if the sequester goes through, if these forced budget cuts go through. you're going to learn over the course of the next month or so how you actually use the government. the issue here is that it will furlough federal employees. it will have cuts that you just described. a number of the governors, as you said, are meeting with the president, trying to make their case that this is really going to hurt us. the transfer payments to the states are going to be hurt. and it's n
assignment the teachers try to be more explicit what is allowed and what is not. >> reporter: so ashleigh, she's explaining the changes that have happened at harvard since this all went down, that now teachers are being very clear on bhas collaboration, what's allowed and what's not allowed. harvard saying look, it took five months to review this to make sure it's been fair to all of the students, but there's been a lot of criticism of how this was handled by the university. some saying the penalty is too harsh and instructions weren't clear, ashleigh. >> all right. poppy harlow live for us as the bells toll as harvard. thank you. we are flat out of time. michael holmes will take the helm with newsroom international. >>> my thanks to you. in new orleans, it is making news as the game itself, we are talking about that blackout that happened at the super bowl, you remember early in the game's third quarter, half of the superdome went dark. well, who is to blame? we have a live report coming up about a minute out from now. >>> also in havana, cuba, the country's general election fiddle castr

and the other one injured badly, so it was a very, very tense afternoon up here, ashleigh. >> and, miguel, just the notion whenever there's a tactical operation, we in the media are used to hearing please lay off the live locations, please take the helicopters away for your safety and ours and let us do our jobs without the suspect potentially being able to track our very move. for that reason, many of of us in the press were unable to witness what happened in those last moments, but were there any people who did get a first hand view of how that fire started? >> look, there was concern among law enforcement that mr. dorner may have been monitoring either television, radio, both or even the internet. they believe his phone went on at one point. it is possible they had some communication with him inside that cabin. we don't know whether or not they actually did, whether there was any offer of surrender, whether or not he wanted to come out of that cabin at any point. he certainly has left zero indication that he did, and he clearly had a deep hatred for all law enforcement no matter where they w

the developments in london. what more do we know, amanda? >> hi, ashleigh. i can tell you that oscar pistorius has been charged with the murder of his girlfriend. he's set to appear in court in pretoria in south africa on friday morning. this all happened very much as we were waking up here in london. reports of a fatal shooting at the house of the 26-year-old oscar pistorius. initially there were reports that it was perhaps a valentine's surprise that had gone horribly wrong, that pistorius woke to what he thought was an intruder and shot that intruder dead. the police, it has to be said, have said they don't know where those stories have come from, so throughout the course of the day, it was then confirmed that it was, in fact, pistorius' girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, as you said, who was shot and killed. and then it has emerged it is pistorius who has been charged with her murder. >> this is devastating to hear that is a report that's out there. do we know that has been knocked down, amanda? that this might have been a valentine's day surprise gone terribly wrong? because there have been stateme
